Up until my mid-20s, I used to hate traveling for vacation. It was just an absolute headache and that was back when I didn’t have to be responsible for any of the financing. However, I eventually learned to not only like traveling, but love it. I was able to do this my simplifying as many elements of traveling as possible, starting with creating a guide to packing for vacation.
When I pack for vacation, I start by being realistic of what I’m going to need. I loathe over-packing. Not only are your carrying around waste, but depending on if you’re flying, it can cost you a lot of money. So, I’ve become very conscious of what I really need to bring when on vacation. Not to mention, bringing too many options will leave room for you to overthink. Who wants to overthink anything on vacation, let alone which color shorts to wear? Not me. Minus the basic denim shorts and basic tees, here’s what I include in my guide to packing for vacation.
This past weekend, I came to the realization that Memphis isn’t getting a Spring this year. Having to deal with 90+ degrees weather in the middle of May is ridiculous. So, to help soothe this depressing understand, I decide to start planning my summer wardrobe.
Keep reading to see what three items are I’m wanting to add to my summer wardrobe this year.
Spring is here and all I’ve been wanting to do is add spring-worthy pieces to my closet. In my opinion, the best way to transition your wardrobe from season to the next is with accessories. So, that’s why I’m starting with adding handbags for spring to my life.
To see what bags I’m leaning into this season, keep reading.
Last year was the year a minimized various areas in my daily life. However, the main thing that I minimized was my everyday grown woman bag. Ever since I was in high school, I always carried a big purse, be it a tote or oversized satchel. The bigger it was, the more likely I would want it and buy it. However, last year, I decide that I wanted to challenge myself to start carrying smaller bags. Not only were my bags last year “smaller”, but they were pretty much mini bags.
It took me a while to get used to only carrying a bag that could only hold my phone, keys, and maybe a tube of lipstick. However, after a couple of months, my mini purse became my new norm. In the fall, I eventually upgraded to carrying small, but roomy pouches. This challenge has been fun for the past year, but I’m ready to start carrying roomy purses again. Thankfully, I already found a few possible contenders that meet my needs.
When it comes to buying items that I know I will hardly use, but will need, I look timeless looks. When it comes to a backpack, I feel like I need one. Although I would rarely, if ever, carry this bag, I know having one will come in handy. So, I’ve been trying to decide on a timeless backpack to buy to have when needed.
After bookmarking roughly 25 different options, I finally settled on one that I now believe everyone should consider owning. Keep reading to see which one I picked and why.
